Charl Linssen

Charl Linssen is a postgraduate student in computational neuroscience.

Charl Linssen is particularly interested in computer simulation of dynamical processes, which unfold over time. The brain is such a dynamical system, and is moreover involved in a continuous feedback with its environment, mediated by the body through perception and action. In his spare time, Charl uses electronics and robotics to build objects that exhibit a similar kind of responsiveness to their environment. These objects have a quality of "animatedness", or being endowed with a spirit, in the sense that they are not just objects like any other, but come to life once the circuit is powered on.
